Ferrari’s new scholarship, the Adam Ferrari Health Science Scholarship, is geared towards students who strive to attend college and study health science. Applicants must meet the eligibility requirements and submit an essay to apply for the one-thousand-dollar scholarship. The essay topic revolves around describing any prior experience obtained working with patients with physical disabilities. In addition, potential candidates must detail the personal appeal behind pursuing a career providing care to patients with physical disabilities. Such a topic lies close to Ferrari’s heart due to one of his close family members suffering from transverse myelitis.
To meet the eligibility requirements, applicants must be either a high school senior who has received acceptance into an accredited college or university or a currently enrolled full-time student at an accredited college or university. Students must also be on track towards achieving a health science degree while having a future interest in caring for and working with patients with physical disabilities. The minimum GPA requirement for the scholarship is a three-point-five.
The submission deadline for applications is January 15th, 2021. One student will be selected to be awarded the Adam Ferrari Health Science Scholarship along with the one-thousand-dollar education funding. The candidate with the best submission will be announced in January of 2021. The winner will have two weeks to accept the scholarship from the day they are notified by email. A winner can be disqualified and lose their award if they do not accept it within the two-week period. If such a situation occurs, then a new winner will be chosen and announced to take the disqualified individual’s place. For the winner who accepts the scholarship, the Adam Ferrari Health Science Scholarship committee reserves the right to ask for additional information from the winner, including but not limited to documentation in support of the information provided by the winning contestant.
